The unseasonably warm weather here of late has us thinking of gardens and fresh veggies. One of our favorite spring dishes is this casserole made with yellow squash.
If you are planning your spring garden, give yellow squash a chance. It is easy and quick to grow – often one of the first veggies to make contributions to the table. If you pick the squash while they are still small, the plants produce even more and the squash is tender and sweet. It makes a colorful addition to salads and pasta salads, is delicious battered and fried (what isn’t?), and this casserole is simple to make and a sure winner on the dinner table.

Yellow Squash Casserole
3 cups yellow squash, diced
1 onion, diced
1/3 cup oil
1 cup Colby Jack cheese
1 cup biscuit mix
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon garlic salt
1/4 teaspoon seasoning salt
Mix eggs and oil in large bowl then add squash and onion. Next, add cheese and biscuit mix and sprinkle spices on top. Mix together roughly. It makes a somewhat dry mixture.
Pour mixture into a large glass baking dish, like a 13 x 9 inch glass pan. You want the casserole to be fairly thin.
Bake at 375 degrees for 40 to 60 minutes depending on the thickness. It is ready when it is lightly browned on top and bottom.
